“It is political killing, don’t link it with return of Kashmiri Pandits”

Srinagar: Jammu & Kashmir unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday said Tral incident is a security lapse and questioned how terrorists were roaming freely in the area.

“It is a security lapse. We’re not security agencies aware that three unidentified terrorist were roaming in the area? Is not this a security lapse? We agree with the fact that our leader had not taken PSOs along with him,” BJP general secretary, Ashok Koul, according to news agency, told reporters at Srinagar party office.

BJP leader and chairman Municipal Committee Tral Rakesh Pandita was killed by suspected terrorists in Tral area of southern Kashmir last night

Koul said the government should admit lapses on its part.

He termed the killing as a political killing and said that this should not be associated with return of Kashmiri Pandits.

“It is a political killing and should not be connected with the return of Kashmir Pandits or other things,” he said.

He said BJP leaders are being targeted by terrorists from past one year in Kashmir.

He said such incidents should not take place. “Pandita was trying to strengthen the Municipal Committee and was working for development,” he said.
